Emmy Awards 2014 Best Dressed

Morning folks!

I'm stuck in an airport for 3 hours, so what better time to present my favourite looks from last nights Emmy Awards!! There were a lot of fresh whites, vibrant reds and deep royal blue's to be seen last night. These are my personal favourites from the evening.

1. Natasha Lyonne

This Orange Is The New Black inmate scrubs up very well. The colour really compliments her hair and I love the flirty hemline.

2. Alicia Quarles

What really caught my eye with this dress is the checkerboard velvet detail on the skirt. It brings a great modern balance against the vintage lace.

3. Keltie Knight

Another lacey number, but check out the buttoned open back detail. This is both sophisticated and sassy!

4. Amanda Crew

This is incredibly elegant and Amanda has taken the attention away from the dress with over-the-top accessories. Her plain white nails and dark blue ring really complete this outfit.

5. Lena Dunham

I am always excited to see what Lena brings to these big red carpet events. I love that she takes risks and I'm really digging her new lighter do. She may not be conventional, but she's a hell of a lot of fun!

6. Mayim Bialik

This electric blue colour is absolutely gorgeous. I also adore the cut of this dress, very Grace Kelly.

7. Selenis Leyva

This frilly number is cute and classic. She reminds me very much of Dame Shirley with the short glam curls.

8. Julie Bowen

Such an eye catching print with a slight optical illusion; is she moving? Is she standing still? The deep V and halter neck detail gives it a 70's vibe.

9. Lena Headey

Lena was my Miss Rock Chick of the night in this black pinstriped number. I love the asymmetrical one shoulder and hemline. What's more, it shows off her punky tattoos perfectly!

10. Rose Leslie

Although Rose looks slightly washed out, this is still one of my favourite dresses from the night's event. The colour is beautiful and is styled wonderfully with the navy nails and dark lipstick.

11. Allison Williams

This has such a sixties feel with the big bow feature and the yellow sash adds just a dash of modernism; definitely something I would wear.

12. Michelle Dockery

Our very own Lady Mary brings some British glamour in this uniquely layered gown. Both the cut and colour combination are something quite different.

13. Cat Deeley

Another English rose in this enchanting faded dress which hangs beautifully from Cat's small frame. The colour suits her wonderfully.

14. Laverne Cox

Laverne looks like a Greek Goddess in this draped dress. A dazzling white garment to match that dazzling white smile.

15. Julia Roberts

My woman of the evening, and I think everyone else's too. Julia looks a dream in this bubbly layered dress. She styled it perfectly with matching shoes, and check out those legs!!

Men Of The Evening

1. Jim Parsons

Just for being the awesome man he is for having a photo with this ridiculous dog.

2. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

My Mr Grey, you know, if I had the choice... 

Couple Of The Night - Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo

Just look how adorably rock and roll they look together!

So there you have, my favourites from last nights event. Please be reminded that these are just my personal picks, so you may not agree and that is fine. I'd love to hear who your favourites were!

Skylight

Evening!

So last month I was lucky enough to go and see Skylight, a play currently on the West End here in London. It features 2 of my favourite actors; Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy. Before I do my fangirling over them both, here's what I wore.

Navy Jacket // Rokit     Beatles Tee // Rokit     Jeans // Topshop     Boots // New Look

I'm wearing 2 vintage pieces, both from Rokit, which I bought from my vintage shopping weekend with Lee. The 1st is the Beatles tee. Yeah I know, I already have like 10, but this one is different, I've never seen this design before, so it's pretty rare. The second piece is that amazing navy jacket which is also from Rokit for a bargain price of £10! I don't think I've ever been in to Rokit and not bought something amazing.




Before my trip to the theatre, I met up with Luke for a spot of lunch and a wee walkabout, where we got caught in the rain.
The play was very intense and powerful with Carey and Bill portraying their characters brilliantly. I would highly recommend, but hurry as it's only on for another 2 days!!






Look who I managed to meet after the show!! I am literally so happy, I love them both and they were both so lovely, really taking their time with the fans.


Thanks for reading :) be sure to check out my eBay, I have plenty more pretty things I'll be adding!

Wishing you all a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. I'm off to Secret Cinema on Sunday #EXCITABLES I still haven't fully decided what to wear. Unlike most people also going to this event, I actually have too many 50's style clothes to choose from!

I'll be back soon with some McBusted!!!

J'adore Dior

I'm back with a post jam packed with vintage gems! Me and my housemate Lee decided to have a vintage shopping day around East London. Here's what I wore.





Jacket // Matalan     Skirt // Beyond Retro     Top // Rokit     Boots // New Look
Rucksack // Accessorize

During my wee trip down to Brighton (here and here) I paid a visit to Beyond Retro. It was my first time in this particular store so I was excited to have a rummage and see what I might find! To my delight, I found this fab denim skirt. I'm a big fan of monochrome so I knew this piece would fit in nicely with the rest of my wardrobe. I love all the little details, like the beautiful buttons running down the sides.


My top is another vintage find, this time from Rokit. This too has cute little details; the different coloured sleeve cuffs and bejewelled 1 on the back. I really do J'adore Dior, especially when it looks this good!



Now, the weather that day was typically English for the middle of summer; bright but wet, so I was super happy I had the chance to wear my new hooded jacket from Matalan. It's lightweight so perfect for these warmer days and I love the stripey interior!

To keep from getting too wet in the rain, we popped into Beyond Retro just off Brick Lane, where we met Tiny the cat. What a pleasure she was. We stopped for some lunch in a sweet little cafe and ventured to Spitalfields, taking in the sights of the colourful graffiti and old posters on the walls. In Spitalfields we came across a shop selling the cutest dresses at sample sale prices.I very quickly fell in love with Jones & Jones and I ended up buying a new dress for my friends wedding, which I'll be showing you all very soon!








I've got a chockablock busy weekend coming up but hopefully I'll have some time to add some more items to my eBay so be sure to check it out.

Thanks for reading. Don't be shy, come say Hi! :)

Red Bike Beach

Ahoy!

I'm back with day 2 of Brighton. Be warned, there's cake! Here's what I wore.

This wonderful sailor dress is from Absolute Vintage and totally screamed my name as soon as I entered their store! My anchor print shoes were a present from my Mumma - she knows me so well.

Right, now on to the cake! We had a little wonder around the lanes and found a cute wee cafe called Cloud 9 to have some lunch in, they even do ice cream lessons! I spotted the rainbow cake straight away and knew I HAD to have a piece as I've only ever seen photos of this type of cake, but had never actually had the chance to try it for myself. I can now confirm, it is as delicious as it looks! I can't wait to go back and have more.






Well this is embarrassing...

This weekend will be spent mostly popping some lovely delights up on my eBay, so do check it out, you might find something you like, like this dress (you may remember from way back when...) which would be perfect worn to a wedding!

I'll be back with a vintage day post next week. Thanks for reading x
